Program includes the world premiere of John Eaton’s “Songs of Nature and Beyond”, with baritone David Adam Moore; Fantasia on an Ostinato by John Corigliano; and Beethoven’s Sonata in C minor. Corigliano’s poetic shimmering composition uses Beethoven’s Ostinato from the 7th Symphony, and explores its rhythmic and harmonic elements in a hypnotic, colorful fantasy. Eaton’s song cycle is set to the poetry by Auden, Blackmur, Wallace Stevens, and W.B Yeats, and poet Sandra Beasley’s lucid and fresh voice completes the link between then and now.
